* It the ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode "Bubbled", Steven and Eyeball go through an asteroid field that consists of mostly human-sized rocks. How they managed to find an asteroid field after going from the Moon and meeting a satellite without having any acceleration besides being blown out of the airlock isn't mentioned.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Traveller}}'' sometimes hasthem, but this is justified since they are the remains of destroyed planets.
* The Franchise/StarWars-Risk boardgame used an impenetrable asteroid field to represent planets destroyed by the Death Star, rendering travel in the region problematic.

* In ''The Mote in God's Eye'' humans visiting an alien solar system find the asteroids too far from the inhabited world to make sense. They learn that the asteroids were pushed farther out after a war when one of sides pushed them inward, raining them onto the planet.

* The Asteroid fields in ''BattlefleetGothic'' are an {{egregious}} example, probably caused by [[TheCoconutEffect the target audience expecting]] [[SpaceIsAnOcean "terrain" to fight around]]. The effects of asteroid fields are thus: Anything unguided (a space hulk, torpedoes and so on) are automatically destroyed upon entry. [[SpaceFighter Attack craft]] have a 1 in 6 chance of destruction and full space ships (from [[StandardSciFiFleet escorts to capital ships]]) must take a command check, and if failed can take crippling damage in a single instance.

* The ''VideoGame/EscapeVelocity'' series (plays like ''Privateer'', looks like ''Asteroids'') has immensely thick asteroid belts, but ships cannot collide with them. Their purpose is simply to interfere with weapons fire (though they can also be mined in the third game).
